Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA), in collaboration with the "Adnar" group, will host the International Final for the 2016/2017 edition of the world's largest simulation-based strategy and management competition, the 'Global Management Challenge' (GMC), in Doha on April 10th 2017.

On this occasion, QFBA Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdul Aziz Al Horr said "It is QFBA's absolute honor to bring the International Final of the world-renowned 'Global Management Challenge', in partnership with ADNAR Group, to Qatar and the Arab World for the first time ever in the competition's 36-year history." "Not only we will witness the skillfulness and talents of some of tomorrow's brightest business minds during the competing teams participation in the Finals, including the National Winner that will be representing Qatar, but we are also helping raise the status of Qatar as a strong regional supporter of skill-development and human capacity building initiatives and events, in line with the country's National Vision for the year 2030, and in harmony with the Academy's vision, mission, and core values," he said.

He added that QFBA is determined to deliver a world-class event that matches, if not exceeds, previous GMC International Finals that were held in some of the world's biggest capital cities. Since its kick-off in 1980, the GMC has witnessed the participation of more than 500,000 contestants across five continents, with more than 40 countries participating the GMC finals every year. At the core of the competition is an innovative platform built around simulation and strategy-based training models, where each of the teams competing in the National GMC manage a virtual company with the objective of achieving the highest investment performance for their company in a simulated stock exchange.
